The Hebrew Prophets: Selections Annotated & Explained makes the wisdom of these timeless teachers available to readers with no previous knowledge of the prophets. With fresh, contemporary commentary, Rami Shapiro reveals the central themes covered by all the prophets: moving from ignorance to wisdom, injustice to justice, cruelty to compassion and despair to joy.

Rabbi Rami Shapiro is the author of many Skylight Path Publishing books. He writes well and although his books are on somewhat arcane subjects about spirituality and the Bible, he is clear and easy to follow, and he adds interesting information. This book contains selections from the writings of various prophets. Rabbi Shapiro sees all the prophets giving the same message in different words using their own metaphors, a message to act morally. He writes: "The prophets are challenging you to say `no' to your most basic instinct, the instinct to stay put. To stay put is to allow yourself to become static, unchanging, and rigid. It is to reject God's call to move inward and free yourself from the idols that bind, blind, and condition you."

He paraphrases, rather than translating, as shown in this example from Jeremiah 2:13:
The One Who Is says:
You commit two errors:
First, you forsake Me, the Source of living waters.
Second, you dig for yourselves broken cisterns
That cannot hold water.

The Jewish Publication Society translation is:
Saith the Lord,
For My people have committed two evils:
The have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters,
And hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns,
That can hold no water.

He places his version of selections from the prophetic books on right hand side pages and his interpretation on left hand pages. He devotes two thirds of a page explaining this statement from Jeremiah.

Every translator and commentator of ancient documents inserts his own personal ideas, worldviews, and theological inclinations into his or her work consciously or subconsciously, especially when the translator purposely paraphrases, as Rabbi Shapiro does, instead of a literal translation. Rabbi Shapiro's understanding of God may appear to some readers as pantheistic. He writes in the introduction to this volume: "I believe that God is all that is, even as God is greater than all that is. I believe that your relationship with God is analogous to the relationship of a wave to the ocean. The wave is not other than the ocean and yet the ocean is so much more than the wave. God does not dwell in you, above you, outside of you - God is you. When you realize your true relationship with God, you feel connected to all reality and discover that you are connected to all being in, with, and as God. This awakening compels you to act justly, compassionately, and humbly: the very ideal the prophets so highly value."

Whether one agrees with everything Rabbi Shapiro writes or not, all readers will gain information and insights by reading this volume.

In The Hebrew Prophets, Rabbi Rami Shapiro gets downright apocalyptic in many of his interpretations of Hebrew prophecy. The chapter titles say it all. From Ignorence... To Truth; From Injustice... to Justice; From Despair... to Joy.

Shapiro is not afraid to wag his finger at the reader in his interpretations of the prophets, inviting us to step out of the darkness and into the light in his own imitable interpretation of those terms. As such, this text has a decidedly strident tone that is not found in some of his other works. But we can still find his uncompromising non-dualism in Hebrew Prophets, even in the prophetic garb.

In this work, Shapiro psychologizes the message of the prophets, but in a very Jewish and Universalist framework. As such, there is something for many different types of readers in this well-written book.

Award-winning storyteller, poet, and essayist Rabbi Rami Shapiro presents The Hebrew Prophets: Selections Annotated & Explained is a collection of quotes from Hebrew prophets presented both in their literal English translations and contemporary vernacular English explanations of the phrases' meanings. The Hebrew Prophets reveals how words spoken as early as the eighth century B.C.E. direct the faithful to practice justice, wisdom, kindness, and humility. For example, Zechariah 7:8-10 "Execute true justice; / deal kindly and compassionately with one another. / Do not oppress the widow, / the orphan, the stranger, and the poor. / Do not set your heart to plotting evil" is further explained with "This is what God desires: kindness, mercy, and justice to the powerful and powerless alike. Everything else is a mere distraction." The Hebrew Prophets is a valuable introduction to understanding passages of the Old Testament, fully accessible to readers who have little or no knowledge of the Hebrew Bible or Judaism.
